I think this may have been done several months ago, but PS3 has a lot more games out and isn't as new.

I own an XBOX360 and I am trying to decide if I should buy a PS3. I have not been happy with my XBOX because it locks up a lot and College Football (my favorite perennial game) doesn't have anywhere near the features that even the PS2 had. Anyone who has both 360 and ps3 or who has played both extensively please tell me what you think. Should I buy the PS3???

Not that this helps to the topic but...

I have played a PS3 and it was great, i'm now getting one form my upcoming Birthday.

And i have never played a Xbox 360, although i really want to. So, i can't really judge what is better between the both, but i would recommend buying a Playstation 3, they are really cool.

I'm actually torn between which to get......soon I'll be working, and I want to buy one of them, but I don't know which! I mean, 360 has Halo 3, Mass Effect, etc., but PS3 has Uncharted, Ratchet and Clank, Infamous.....it's too hard to choose.

i was playing xbox 360 yesterday and it was very fun. Guitar Hero III, DEVIL MAY CRY 4, Kane & Lynch, Gears of War and I must say it was very VERY entertaining.

However having seen the previews for GTA IV on PS3 I just cant go past the fact of life that I am going to buy it. GTA IV i saw will be $149 Australian Dollars when it is released... which sucks but is soo worth it! CANNOT WAIT! and for cricket game on wii

I predict another PS3 price drop this year, they just created a smaller and cheaper blue ray laser and also they're starting to build PS3s with a smaller cell processor which will also help the price, so I'd hold up on it. Maybe they won't do a price drop to get some profit, but I believe Sony is finally turning a profit already, so a price drop isn't that far fetched. Also another reason I'd recommend to wait till later this year is when they start releasing the PS3s with the 40nm cell processor, it's going to help the cooling A LOT.

Anyways as for the game, are you playing NCAA Football? If so, the PS3 version runs it at 30 frames per second, whereas on the 360 it runs on 60 FPS, meaning it's a lot smoother on the 360 then the PS3, I've tried it and the 360 is a lot smoother. The same goes for Madden.

My problem with the XBOX360 version of NCAA is that you cannot even do formation subs!! I love setting up my team and moving players around based on formations, the PS2 has had this feature for years and the 360 doesn't! I also really hate the 360's menu interface for NCAA. I really appreciate your post because I have been "feeling" a price drop coming as well (Target is already offering a $40 in store gift card for the 40gb PS3). I think I will wait it out.
